Using the shower is a necessity for most people in the morning. Did you know it’s one of the leading ways we use water at home? Try wrapping your head around this: The average American family spends $500 a year on water usage. When you allow the water to run even for just 5 minutes, that’s equivalent to a 60-watt light bulb running for 14 hours. Think of the water and money you’ll save by turning it off more often!

Water Saving Tips for the Shower:

  • Instead of allowing the water to warm up, adjust the temperature when you get in.

  • Shut off the water during minute-long deep conditioning.

  • Begin limiting and timing yourself to 5 minute showers.

  • Install low-flow shower heads to reduce wasted water (like this wooden shower head below!)

  • Fix all leaks immediately!
